The Aerospace Engineering programme at KTH Royal Institute of Technology offers specialisation in Aeronautics, Space, Lightweight Structures and Systems Engineering. Graduates have a solid theoretical foundation in aerospace modelling, analysis and design, as well as teamworking skills and a general ability to approach and solve complex engineering tasks.
The master’s programme in Aerospace Engineering offers students a broad, challenging and internationally acknowledged education. It provides skills in aerospace modelling and design, solving complex engineering tasks, collaboration with others on projects, and communicating results and findings in a professional manner. The programme at KTH is highly international with contacts and students from all over the world. The astronaut and KTH alumnus Christer Fuglesang acts as the chairman of the Progamme Advisory Board.
The employment market for aerospace engineers in Europe is strong and will likely remain so for the foreseeable future. Airbus is the main European aerospace company, employing about 130,000 people, but a large share of the work is performed at various subcontractors all over Europe and worldwide. Students taking the Aeronautics track are particularly attractive to companies working in aerodynamics and aeronautics.
